    There are 5 teams in the Wildcard Race in the AFC


    Miami Dophins are in
    Kansas City Chiefs are in
    Pittsburg Steelers (at 10-4 and leading the North they will get in)
    Houston Texans (will win the division)

    The rest of the teams will be fighting for 2 spots

    1.Oakland Raiders (8-5) Oakland plays a tough Lions team this week, and then has to play the West leading Chiefs in week 16. Lastly they will finish the season against San Diego. This would be a tall task IMO, having a pretty tough schedule for the remainder of the season.

    2. Cincinnatti Bengals (8-6) The Bengals only have 2 games remaining, against the Cardinals (3-11), and ending with the Ravens. Basically they need the Raiders to lose and then it would be on them in the final game of the year against the Ravens.

    3. Baltimore Ravens (8-6) The Ravens have to play the Browns, who have been tough as of late, and they finish with the playoffs on the line against the Bengals.

    4. San Diego Chargers (8-6) The Chargers also have a tough road to the playoffs as they play the Lions in week 16, and the Raiders to finish the year off.

    5. Buffalo Bills (7-6) Buffalo has to pretty much win out, and they are kind of a long shot, They play the Dolphins in week 15, the Broncos in week 16, and finish the year against a tough Patriots team.

    All 5 teams fighting for the 2 spots control their own destiny... I would like everyone to post who they think will take the 2 spots... Should be interesting to see how people think it will play out...

    I'm going to choose the Bengals, and the Raiders...

    Raiders lose by 6 to the Lions and there deep bombs to Calvin and Co.

    Raiders are out of the playoffs. First season I actually finished with a winning record so it's all good with me.

    no WR on my team had a TD over 12 yards and the longest catch to CJ was 58 yards leaving him with 5 other catches averaging 10 yards each. He was shutdown on every deep ball but one. Welker really had the big game with the YAC

    But it was the threat of the deep ball which I did count 7 attempts of deep balls (3 dropped by my DB's that should have been picks) that made it easy for the underneath routes, and if I was any good a lick at usering my LB's I would have had a much better game, oh well like I said this is my first winning season is 7 seasons in Madden 12 so I'll take it.

    Pats are out didnt have a chance really but great game with truth and his dolphins

    branch with an awesome catch and TD to square it at 10-10 with a minute left but those dolphins do it again with a Fg as time expires to win it 13-10

    Raiders win a 31-23 game against the Chiefs, after McFadden had only 6 carries and went out of the game with a lower back strain. Will do the write up today after work (y)

    Wow with the Chiefs losing 2 straight games the Steelers have taken over the #2 seed and dolphiins are #1
    From what i see the AFC Playoff Seedings will be like this
    #1 Miami Dolphins
    #2 Pittsburgh Steelers
    #3 Kansas City Chiefs
    #4 Houston Texans
    #5 Oakland Raiders
    #6 Baltimore Ravens/ Cincinnati Bengals - Whoever wins in their head to head matchup week 17 will be in.

    So Round 1 will be Miami and Pittsburgh with bye weeks and
    #3 Kansas City Chiefs vs #6 Baltimore/ #6 Cincinnati
    #4 Houston Texans vs #5 Oakland Raiders

    kdpnutter youre in man you did (y) good job beating them Chiefs

    Not a smart move by the Chiefs changing up strategy late in the season costing them a 1st round bye. Now they are most likely going to face a pretty good Bengals team.

    What? There is nothing wrong with running a 4-6 defense as long as I am not using it as a nickel or dime package, which if you ask bjbdahitman I most certainly did not I used my nickel and dime packages. According to Shaun it is perfectly fine to use it that way.
